  1. I like both actors , however Xiao Zhan the part he played just didn’t fit for him , I’m sorry . The story line kept going off it’s like they ran thru it . Yang Zi is a good actress , just not paired with him it was like a forced pair. Xiao Zhan is more of an untamed , doulo continent kind of actor . I’m sorry just my opinion !

  2. Noooo!!!I love Xiao Zhan , just watched The Untamed and he is a huge success right now.I hope they don’t pair him with Yang Zi which is a super annoying actress which spoilt Ashes of Love for me.She is not pretty and looks much older than Xiao Zhan, please chose a better match!

    1. I really love yangzi, she is really best actress, she is good in portraying all her roles, funny and beautiful inside, out, no mTter what people said I really trust her and believed her, go go yangzi fighting were here all the time to support you, we love you soooo much baby girl!

  3. I’m a huge fan of Yang Zi, but her character seems too similar to GGS’ Tong Nian and the age difference circumstance also seems to be a huge similarity. Buuuuuut as a fan, I’m going to trust Yang Zi as she is known to choose her projects carefully and works hard to portray each of her roles differently. I don’t know Xiao Zhan, but I’ve heard he’s had a recent surge of popularity so I have a lot of expectations from him and this drama. I really hope this drama is another success for the both of them. I also hope they both exceed everyone’s expectations and prove their respective doubters wrong.

  4. I am NOT really looking forward to seeing Yang Zi in this with Xiao Zhan. Hopefully she will be mature & believable. I have been wanting to see more dramas of Xiao Zhan though. I love him. I hope we/I will be able to tolerate the female lead in this. It is really hit and miss with most Chinese female leads I’ve seen.
